Freebie Honey is the second episode of FLCL: Progressive and eightth of the FLCL series.


Hidomi wakes up from yet another dream of her becoming a zombie; at school, Raharu gives her a handout to bring over to Ide, who didn't show up to class.


Hidomi wakes up from a nightmare about being in a gory zombie movie and heads to school, where the teacher has revealed herself as Haruko and gives the class a yearbook of memories. The class reminisces about the wonderful things Haruko did with them, though Hidomi only sees the pictures as crude stick-figure drawings. Later, Haruko asks Hidomi to give the missing Ko Ide his classwork. Hidomi heads to a slum on the outskirts of town, where Goro reveals that Ko has been hard at work making and selling machinery and getting beaten in the process. Hidomi gets a nosebleed as she starts to overflow from watching Ide get beat up by some shady customers, but faints before anything happens. She later wakes up in Ide's room, but after an awkward moment Haruko appears with a video camera. Then Jinyu crashes through with her Chevy Bel-Air transformed into a humanoid mech. Haruko counters by attacking a leash to Ko and summoning the same mechanical creature from before. As the two women fight each other, Hidomi overcomes her inhibitor and transforms into a tiny mechanical doll that blows away Haruko with tremendous force. Jinyu then converts her Chevy into a medical device and places both Hidomi and Ko into it. Hidomi remembers to give Ko his classwork for the day.
